ARRA Dashboard


The tables and graphics in this dashboard will promote transparency and accountability and provide information on FTA's progress in obligating and disbursing funds to grant recipients as well as the extent to which funds have been committed and expended by the recipients. The charts provide a detailed breakdown of the types of public transportation projects funded by the Recovery Act, the status of these projects' implementation, and number and types of jobs created or sustained.

The enclosed information comes from the most current available data and will be updated as new data becomes available on a quarterly basis or more frequently as necessary. Additional information on Recovery Act projects can be found at
